Church & State, Syrah, Coyote Bowl, Okanagan Valley, BC, 2009

There was something inspirational about tasting this wine at the outdoor bar at Church & State’s Oliver operation – but when we opened it at Whistler, it was spectacular.

Deep ruby and savoury, there was significant spice and red fruit in addition to layers of black plum and bramble.  The savoury notes grew as the wine spent some time in the glass to show bacon and cured meat.  With the lengthy finish, this is a balanced and complex BC wine.

Everyone was impressed by this one – there has to be some reason it won Canada’s Best Wine in 2011.

A WSET Very Good wine; drink now and whenever possible.
